Newbie

Post by Chris SI » Mon Jul 13, 2020 8:48 pm

Good evening everyone,

I thought I would start by introducing myself, as my user name suggests I’m Chris and an owner of an 1999 S1 Elise. It is my first lotus and I’ve only owned the car for a few weeks. I have moved from owning classic Mini’s for the last 7 years or so. I love the Lotus but it seems to lag behind the performance and handling of my old works Mini Cooper S. So there may be a few questions coming about setting the car up and extracting a little more enthusiasm from the engine. I’m currently reading through the parts and service manuals to learn more about the car. I have also started the fatal list of jobs to do...Let the tinkering begin.

Regards, Chris.

Welcome chris

There’s plenty of people round here that can help with extracting more power out of the k series, I haven’t got one but the emerald Ecu seems to be the way to go

I’m sure they’ll be a couple of people along shortly to advise you further :)

Whereabouts are you, Chris?

Zav used to compete/race an SI, so he has good knowledge. On Geo, most people on here (including me) take their car to Olly at Phoenix Motorsport in Church, Accrington. He's the guru.
